Tory voters 'oppose gay marriage'

A new poll show David Cameron's call for the introduction of same-sex marriage is out of step with Conservative voters. Research by ICM for The Sunday Telegraph shows:

  • Half of the party's supporters are against the move
  • 35% are in favour
  • However the wider public backs it by a margin of 45% to 36%

The Government will launch a consultation next week, with the Prime Minister signalling he wants new laws in place by the 2015 general election.
